Monday in the office was long for Facebook, as the social media giant with 1.9 billion daily active users faced an outage for a good chunk of the day. For about six hours, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Workplace were all down, affecting too many people.
But the internet has a weapon unlike any other to battle such a crisis by making hilarious reaction memes and jokes on the way. And as any smart competitor would, Twitter saw a perfect time to enjoy its rare spotlight by tweeting “hello literally everyone,” from its main account. It garnered 2.4 million “likes” in just four hours.
Meanwhile, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took a financial hit. According to Bloomberg, Zuckerberg lost $6 billion in hours as Facebook plunged and dropped to No. 5 on the list of the world’s richest, below Gates.
So scroll down through the best of the outage reaction memes that will surely crack you up, because let me tell you, with Facebook or without, we’re all gonna be fine as long as we have that smashing sense of humor (outage-proof!).
